We launched a short online survey for employers and students to modernize the education program “Artificial Intelligence Systems” of 122 Computer Science field (within the WARN-project Erasmus + Capacity Building Project 610133-EPP-1-2019-1-FI-EPPKA2-CBHE-JP https://warn-erasmus.eu/) towards countering hybrid threats. We highly appreciate your feedback.
All Ukrainian partners of the WARN-consortium (Kharkiv National University of Radio Electronics, Higher Educational Establishment Ukrainian Catholic University, State University of Infrastructure and Technologies, National University of Ostroh Academy, National Academy of Managerial Staff of Culture and Arts, Kharkiv Regional Institute of Public Administration, State Higher Education Institution “Donbas State Pedagogical University, Horlivka Institute of Foreign language, Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine) presented the project results.
The various aspects of project implementation were investigated within the NEO Monitoring Mission. The first part of the meeting was devoted to the discussion with management of partner institutions, where Rector V. Semenets represented NURE, together with Rectors of other partners (Rector of UCU B. Prah, Rector of DUIT V. Panin, Vice Rector of NUOA D. Shevchuk, the first director of KRI NAPA D. Karamyshev and the Director of GIIM E. Belitska).
The national coordinator of the project, associate professor of the EC department S. Hryshko, presented the achieved results of the whole WARN-consortium.
The team of each partner had an interview with representatives of NEO in Ukraine within the monitoring mission. NURE was represented by S. Hryshko and L. Titova. The monitoring mission also conducted the meetings with the project stakeholders, scientific and administrative staff and students in general.
Representatives of the NEO in Ukraine Svitlana Shitikova and Kateryna Zhdanova helped the WARN team to shape a common vision of the situation and assess the state of implementing the project. During the monitoring meeting, the WARN team received useful comments, advices and solutions. Negotiation of the monitoring results allowed to summarize the results and facilitate the teams learning the preliminary conclusions and recommendations of the monitoring.
On October 19-20, 2020, at the Artificial Intelligence Department, online meetings of the section “Modern Problems of Computational and Artificial Intelligence” were held. This section is an integral part of the conference “Intelligent Information Systems” and the XXIV Youth Forum “Radio Electronics and Youth in the XXI century.” One of the participants represented the reports related to the development and use of new architectures of deep neural networks for solving applied problems. That was distinct. It is pleasant to note that the students of the AI department studying in the junior courses also take part in our Forum with reports, using the knowledge gained in discrete mathematics and other modules to the presentations.
We thank all the participants and wish them new creative success and health!
Due to enhanced anti-epidemic measures as coronavirus infection COVID-19 spreads over Ukraine, the XXIV Youth Forum “Electronics and Youth in the XXI century” will be held online on October 19-21, 2020. As the track of the Forum, the Department of Artificial Intelligence organises a meeting of section #1 “Modern problems of Computational and Artificial Intelligence”, conference #6 “Intelligent Information Systems”.
This academic year, the cohort of students of the Artificial Intelligence Department, who study in the speciality 122 – Computer Science, “Artificial Intelligence” program, were replenished with five groups at once. This very joyful event means that we are not afraid of any coronavirus.
At the AI department, meetings of academic groups curators with their freshmen were held last week. Students officially have got their student ID cards. The curators also familiarized their students with the organization of the educational process and compliance with restrictions during the quarantine (COVID-19); told about the assessment system and types of semester exams; provided clarifications on scholarships and regulations, and the use of Google corporate services.
Newly arrived students are full of desire to study, and we, for our part, will do our best to make the learning process (albeit distantly) as interesting and useful for the children as possible.
Congratulations to our freshmen and wish them health and excellent academic success!
The last academic year 2019-2020 turned out to be complicated: many had to, as they say, “on the fly” readjust to distance learning. But for the students of our department, the participants of the French project, it was precisely this mode of study that was initially planned. For the Department of Artificial Intelligence, this project has already become traditional. It is carried out within the framework of the Agreement on Cooperation on a joint training program in a virtual environment (development of business projects in the field of information technology) between the Kharkiv National University of Radio Electronics and the Higher School of Engineering (ECAM-EPMI Graduate School of Engineering), Cergy-Pontoise, France. The goal of the project is to continue the joint training program in the field of information technology for Ukrainian and French students. In the 2019-2020 academic year, the EVV program was held through joint seminars during March-April 2020 via videoconferences and through the Moodle course management system. The language of instruction and communication is English. During the implementation of the project and at the final defence, our students demonstrated a broad outlook and professional knowledge in the field of modern information technology, a right level of English proficiency, a willingness to present, defend and commercialize their projects in the field of intelligent information technology.
Following the completion of the project, the head of the department of AI Prof. Filatov V.A. congratulated all the students, participants of the French project, with excellent results, and the vice-rector for innovative corporate work and administration prof. V.V. Rossikhin solemnly presented the Certificates signed by the rectors of the two partner universities and wished them further creative and professional success, as well as good health!
We open the call to study on ICT programme (code 067 according to UNESCO international standard – ISCED) during one semester (Spring) for 2020 – 2021 academic year within Erasmus+ academic mobility project with Spanish University of Jaén (UJA). To participate in the competition students should send CV and motivation letter until September 30, 2020 to the e-mail address:
The AI Dep team will collaborate with colleagues from Universities and IT companies of Finland, United Kingdom, Portugal, China and Ukraine within project «Deep Intelligent Optical and Radio Communication Networks» aims at transnational and intersectoral staff exchange focused on optical and radio network traffic optimization using AI techniques especially neural network based approaches.
In addition to the mobility project with the Spanish University of Jaen (https://www.ujaen.es/en) which has been implementing since 2018, the department has received two new partners for the realizing academic mobility of students and teachers according to the results of the Erasmus+ KA107 Call:
The defences of the master students at the Artificial Intelligence Department, who studied on the educational and scientific program “Artificial Intelligence Systems” (speciality 122 – Computer Science) has ended.
The last day of defence was notable for the fact that the rector, professor Valery Semenets connected to us for a video conference of the examination board meeting. He listened to some of the presentations, took part in an online discussion, and even asked a few questions to defenders. We hope he was engaged in the same way as us. Almost all topics of master’s theses are practical and contemporary. The presented works were devoted to the research both fields of cognitive and computational intelligence. The results of studies on the application of various types of deep neural networks for solving applied problems, including natural language processing, image recognition, and even game development, were presented. The students researched the modelling of scaleless networks, studied their properties and practical implementation in the form of both professionally-oriented and social networks. There were also works in which the approaches of cognitive and evolutionary modelling applied to the development of intelligent decision support systems in poorly structured situations. Summing up, students are not afraid to undertake complex but exciting projects for them required pre-processing of a large amount of data and even full-scale experiments.
We wish our Masters new interesting creative tasks, health and success!
